His presumed "full name", Marcus Vinicius da Cruz (d)e Mello Moraes, is apparently the result of a joke by Manuel Bandeira. According to de Moraes' sister, he was registered by his father as Marcus Vinicius de Moraes and then legally changed his name dropping "Marcus".
Following the current Portugese orthographic rules, his name should be written as "Vinícius de Morais".
